A friend and I had been planing a baby shower for her sister-in-law that would require us to go to Austin for a weekend. We had everything figured out even bought decorations so all we had to do was purchase the food we needed for the menu the morning before the shower. Well needless to say Texas has bipolar weather it was for-casted to be highs in the 70s and sunny and then 2 days before this massive snowstorm covering the whole middle of the US hit du du duh we were iced in for a week a whole week it was craziness Texans are use to everything thawing out a day or two after it hits but not this time people were starting to panic and the city decided to have controlled power outages and thus causing peoples pipes to freeze and making a bad situation worse. Needless to say we didn't make it to Austin instead we postponed the shower a couple of weeks. Here are some pics of the devastation from us county folks point of view.
